“Jane Vagnar once told a story about a friend who had four young boys bursting with energy, especially in church. But one Sunday, the preacher’s sermon got their undivided attention. The minister stressed that we should never try to get even no matter what others do to us.
“One afternoon, her youngest boy came into the house crying. Between the sobs, he told his mother that he had kicked one of his brothers, who had kicked him in return.
“‘I’m so sorry that you’re hurt,’ said the mother. ‘But you shouldn’t go around kicking people.’
“To which the tearful child replied, ‘But the preacher said he wasn’t supposed to kick me back.’
“With the impeachment trial of former President Trump looming and many egregious executive orders signed by President Joe Biden, one can only wonder if this is the Democrats’ understanding of unity. We can kick you, but don’t you kick back.”
-Rev. Mark Creech
